Then again, each account has several hundred purchases against them, and not one negative note. I might suggest just letting it go - it's only ten pounds, and you won - right? It might be interesting to send the buyer a note - he did also buy an SS/20 with 20" monitor for 63 pounds, so they may be a kindred spirit - you could make a new friend. ;^)
